Dave , 15-20 psi and leave it out in the sun . flip it about every 30 minutes or so.
It took me about all day to grow a ta/fc hoosier 34.5 17x16
1/2 of an inch .

First and foremost, I do not work at M/T so this is only my experience, and none of the people at M/T are responsable!! First, let the big tire flat and leave it flat until ready to use, and to stretch, I put 40lbs. in the small tire, and then beat the tread while rolling the tire, with a big big hammer, if it is out 1/2 then let it sit for awhile?? No real info on time, this would be best if done before running, and then run right away, when letting air out of tire being stretched, do not let it flat, let it down near the pressure being run and then measure/ run. Good luck, always works for me, BG

I just did a set of 29.5x10.5's....Jegs claimed they don't need to send them out matched on that small of a tire....BS. Mine were 3/4" off. Put 40# in the small one and let it sit in the sun for about an hour. Got them within an 1/8th. First burnout should 'set' the tire.
